BMW is debuting the Vision Future Luxury in Beijing this week, and it bears hallmarks such as lightweight engineering featuring layers of carbon fabric and aluminum, as well as wood and leather trims.
The carbon underlying layer is visible in the doors, under the seats and the unique B-pillar that allows the BMW Vision Future Luxury to have wide-opening coach doors.
The car features BMW ConnectedDrive services comprised of three 3D displays. The BMW Vision Head Up Display shows information directly in the driver’s line of sight onto the road, and it highlights buildings, traffic signs and hazards.
The BMW Vision Future Luxury is equipped with Passenger Information Display for front passengers and two Rear Seat Displays set into carbon surrounds, along with a detachable Rear Seat Touch Command Tablet, all of which are also connected to the front displays.
The car offers cavernous space, replete with a retractable table. Interior touches include finest-quality aniline leather in Batavia brown and a lighter Silk shade, Silk nubuk leather and the warm brown, layered lime wood.
The headlights are unique in the Vision Future Luxury. The BMW Laserlight is a new technology that increases “brightness, range and intensity” as concentrated, parallel light beam is up to ten times more intense than a LED system, BMW says in a news release.
For the first time on a BMW, the rear lighting is provided by organic LEDs, “paving the way for a completely new treatment of the typical BMW L-shaped lights,” according to the German automaker, which concluded that the “BMW Vision Future Luxury is a long-term outlook on the perception of modern luxury for the BMW brand.”
